to an empty chair. the empty chair represented president obama. this week's cover of "the new yorker" picks up on the performance against mitt romney. why don't you since you work for "the new yorker" ryan, put that cover up again. >> this is barry blitz, one of -- i think one of the most -- a lot of people, one of my favorite cartoonists at the new yorker, famously in 2008 did a cover that was controversial of barack and michele obama in the oval office, remember this -- >> the terrorist misstep. happen to have a piece in that issue, overshaded doed the palestinian issue. but yeah, i think he captured what everyone's reaction to that debate was. >> not the 2% of republicans. >> the 70% of independents that thought romney won -- >> i love the jim lehrer detail on this. >> and your cantonist quoted as saying he never realized how difficult it would be to caricature furniture. he learned a new new lesson. >> interesting to see back to the poll numbers, we heard congressman ryan saying you get the -- no effect at all in that debate. i think -- >> we don't have the data yet. everyone is like -- >>
. the alternative energy market is not going to start working in the next two weeks. the obama economic policies aren't going to be working in the effect two weeks. it wasn't about style. it's about substance and obama not being able to stand on his own record. that record is not going to change between now and the next debate. martha: thank you for being with us today. bill: president obama telling the american people there is one pledge he will always keep. >> four years ago i said i'm not a perfect man and i'm no won't be a perfect president. that's probably a promise governor romney thinks i have kept. you i promised i would fight every single day for the american people and the middle class. i kept that promise. if you will vote for me, then i promise i will fight just as hard in a second term. bill: this won't be long. but give me four minutes. the romney campaign says he was a clear winner on substance. >> mitt romney may have scored some style point during this theatrical debate performance but he failed on the facts and his credibility didn't pass the bar the american people are looking
stay on the offensive until the next two weeks until the next debate he has with president obama. they really need to -- enough patting themselves on the back. it's new now. i said to someone this morning in the romney campaign, they called up and said thanks for your praise. i said you guys did great, you get to enjoy this morning. go back on the offensive, continue to make your case, the key is to stay on the offensive, not let what happened in denver stay in denver but use it as an inflection point for the rest of the campaign. jenna: you're a tough critic. you say all right. here is what you need -- >> to their credit they are giving a foreign policy speech monday at the virginia military institute. i has to layout his policy-heavy forward looking agenda. maybe he should give another speech on taxes, debt, on obamacare and keep up on the offensive on policy, i think that is the key. jenna: substance is something we've talked about talked a lot about. you mentioned the media being critical of the romney campaign. you at times have been critical of the romney campaign, maybe a
's like turning now into an urban legend. by the middle of next week, people will say barack obama can't walk down the sidewalk without stumbling. i'm stunned by -- i mean, the republicans are excited, but i'm stunned by how democrats seem to keep getting more depressed every day. i've had people that have never voted republican in their life. >> right. >> saying i may have to do it this year. >> i think there's been that. there's also been a little bit of a back-and-forth about the jobs numbers that have made the republicans look desperate. but yes, overall, i think the debate had a terrible impact for the president and one that i think is surprisingly lasting. >> yeah, why is that? >> well, because a lot of people were watching and because you're wondering why things don't work in washington. and when you see two people go head to head and you see it be so starkly clear stylistically, you kind of wonder if that is brought home. >> that the president's disconnect -- >> yeah. so there's a lot of work to be done in the next debate. i mean, a lot of work. he's going to have to get his ha
goodman. with less than five weeks before the general election, president obama and republican presidential nominee mitt romney squared off in their first presidential debate wednesday in denver, colorado. for 90 minutes, the candidates faced off over taxes, unemployment, economic regulations, social security, health care, education, partisan gridlock and other domestic issues. romney repeatedly attacked obama's record, often putting the president on the defensive. many supporters of obama have expressed surprise that he never mentioned several of romney's potential weak spots, including his record as the private equity firm bain capital. also his vast personal wealth and offshore investments, and his recent remark that 47% of americans are government dependents. some domestic issues went virtually unmentioned wednesday night, including immigration policy, global warming, gun control, incarceration rates, and poverty. some key voices were shut out the conversation, including those of third-party presidential candidates. as obama and romney were facing off at the university of d
mitt romney said he was wrong about the 47%. it took him a week. he said, quote, completely wrong. five years later, has president obama adjusted to anything in that speech? no. >> and the difference is the "new york times" has covered the 47% video and they have not covered the video from barack obama. >> it's on not in the same universe. it rail isn't. i know conservatives are trying push that, but it is not in the same universe. >> jon: all right, next on news watch, uni' vision's report on fast and furious might put the mainstream media to shame. >>. >> jon: univision the spanish language television network had a shocking documentary linking the fast and furious gun running scandal to a bloody massacre in mexico in which 16 teenagers were killed in january 2010. abc, cbs and nbc have largely ignored the follow-up on this story. univision and praise they deserve putting it out there? >> kudos to them and it was really well researched piece. they decided to really follow the evidence. that is exactly what i think we need to require the media is to go after this. univision did, no one
chris stevens and three other americans were killed three weeks ago. critics argue the obama administration was not prepared for the violence. secretary of state clinton says she's determined to find out if any security requests were denied. >> now to some disturbing medical news. more than two dozen people in five states have become ill in a meningitis outbreak. four of those people have died and more case are expected. all of them have taken steroid injections to treat back pain. doctors say those steroids made in massachusetts were contaminated. this type of fungal meningitis is not contagious. >> baseball's regular season ended last night. the detroit tiger's miguel cabrera made history. he led the american league in home runs, runs batted in. jim axelrod has been following this. jim, good morning. >> reporter: once in a generation might actually be underselling it. this hasn't been done in 45 years. miguel cabrera is now taking his place alongside some of the greatest names in baseball history. >> getting ready to hit third in this inning. >> reporter: he could have sat
stevens and three other americans were killed three weeks ago. critics argue the obama administration was not prepared for the violence. secretary of state clinton says she is determined to find out if any security requests were denied. >>> new labor department figures out this morning show that businesses are adding jobs but not that many. the number of americans filing for unemployment benefits rose to 367,000 last week. that is 4,000 more than the previous week. the labor department will release its september jobs report tomorrow. economists expected unemployment rate to increase a fraction to 8.2%. >>> baseball's regular season ended last night. detroit tigers miguel cabrera made history, led the american league in home runs, batting average and runs batted in. jim axelrod has been following this once-in-a-generation event. >> good morning, norah. that may be underselling it. this hasn't been done in 45 years. miguel cabrera is now taking his place alongside some of the greatest names in baseball history. >> getting ready to hit third in this inning. >> he could have sat out the l
's corruption here, that the chicago people, meaning the guys around president obama, got to the bls. >> chris. >> and manipulated the numbers. >> chris, stop it now. i have reviewed 14 businesses this week from restaurants to rental cars to widgets. i have seen everybody with a third quarter equal to or weaker than first quarter. in order to get 873,000 new jobs, you would have to have a gdp going at 4% to 5%. the second quarter was downgraded from 1.7 to 1.3. the third quarter is the no going to be very strong. it just defies the imagination to have a surge larger than any surge since 1983 a month before the election. i leave it to you to do all the analys analysis. >> i'm just going back because it seemed like you were doing that. let me go to keith hall. he was bush's guy, commissioner of the bls. he said to "the wall street journal" today following what you said, there's no way someone at the bureau of labor statistics could change neb data from its surveys. these numbers are good. so why do you know more than him? do you really think it gets back to the question of integrity. do you beli
. republicans were thrilled with his performance. democrats were not so thrilled with president obama's performance. the question is going to be has mitt romney been able in a race where he's been clearly behind the president to hurt him enough and sustain that momentum over the next three weeks. that's what's really critical. there have been strong debates, john kerry had a strong debate against george w. bush in 2004. but he wasn't able to translate that into lasting benefit. that's the best of the next three weeks, to see whether romney can keep it going or whether president obama comes out with a higher level of aggression, higher level of energy in the next debate and stop the momentum that romney accumulated last night. >> okay. yeah, i had so many different thoughts, john, as we watched the whole thing. i remember that a lot of republicans were supporting newt gingrich because just for this moment, they wanted -- they thought newt was such a great debater, they wanted to see someone like newt talk to president obama about his policies and about the last four years. and they tho
will turn it on like anything you have ever seen for the next five weeks. he will be the best president in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of the things he has been running on the for the past 18 months. he even through the tax policy away. he just changed everything. it was really unbelievable. i think many people looked at him being more aggressive. that is what they were rewarding. once people started paying attention to exactly why he said, they would see that his -- that he told so many lies and distorted what he was trying to say. i think the president look very presidential. he was not aggressive. he explained exactly what he wanted to say. i thought the whole purpose of the debate was for each one to explain what their policy was. romney just completely changed. that is what was so -- i guess it is not so surprising, because that is what he has
something once a week. on the serious side because it's really -- i think people will discounts what he says because it's biden. they'll say well, he's off on his own again. but from obama, you saw those quips he was tossing out. the stuff that you wish you had said, all the witty remarks and rebuttals that you never said at the dinner, but you remember on the way out. so he had all of these chances last night, which again shows he doesn't have a good game when it comes to being quick and effective on his feet, he's trying to make up for it. but what's going to happen in the second debate, it's going to be a town hall. that's different dynamic, how you interact with the audience. that's where, for example, bush did badly. bush won and clinton did really well. so that's going to be a challenge. romney is really good one on one. it will be different in a town hall for him. >> bret: we have the wit of the staircase sometimes here on the panel. when we leave the panel, man, why didn't i say that. >> i have the wit of the car every night. [ laughter ] >> bret: speaking of the biden-ryan set-up as
think in this case, barak obama suffered from his own hubrus. he strolled in thinking he could phone it in. it reminded me several weeks ago we had national empty chair day. it looked like national empty podium day there yesterday for him. rather unfortunate. i think he's not going to take it for granted the next time. >> brian: what i saw interesting, for example, when you hear the president talk about tax breaks fort oil companies and for the rich and the corporate jet owners, as if they're the problem, i thought it was very interesting and a calculated way, mitt romney was able to spell out why they are not the problem and take the corporate oil -- excuse me, take the oil company tax breaks, put it in perspective and compare it to the green energy. a lot of people who do this for a living and hoping not to be vilified, which they were for the last 3 1/2 years, must have felt pretty good. >> yeah. romney was incredibly effective. he looked competent. he sounded confident. he was engaged. he was everything that barak obama was not. i think it was a reminder to people of just how di
. it is going to be fascinating to see what the polls show this next week. a lot of it may hinge on what happens in three minutes. we've got the jobs report coming out and the obama campaign obviously crossing their fingers. >> we'll bring that to you live. chuck and miles stay with us. the jobs number is moments away. we'll be right back. [ female announcer ] ready for a taste of what's hot? check out the latest collection of snacks from lean cuisine. creamy spinach artichoke dip, crispy garlic chicken spring rolls. they're this season's must-have accessory. lean cuisine. be culinary chic. >>> breaking news. the jobs numbers are out the lowest since january of 2009. >> 7.8%. that politically is great news. however, you got to scratch your heads. 114,000 nonfarm jobs added. you have to have 150,000 just to keep up with population growth. i'm not an economist but this has to mean that more and more people, miles nadal, are discouraged and have just stopped looking for work. if you're not even having enough jobs created to keep up with population growth, and the unemployment rate drops 0.3 percent
's going to be less than that. i've been blogging and interviewing him for weeks and weeks to tell me and he drops that bomb before this local guy. >> he's getting so pressure to come out with specifics here. >> he's got to give specifics on loopholes and spending. but president obama has to give specifics too. we don't know where he's going in a second term. because he's never said. >> exactly. and he's not getting the pressure the way romney is. larry, we'll talk to you during the show. you're going to be here watching this debate and analyzing it. joining us now is ron paul. representative paul is a staunch critic of the fed. certainly fed jim bernanke and a big hawk about our deficit. good to have you on the program. >> thank you, maria. good to be with you. >> what are you expecting? do you think governor romney comes out swinging right off the bat? what do you think he is going to be pressured and asked about in terms of specifics on his economic plan? >> overall i don't expect a whole lot of specifics from either one. in the last several weeks the whole of the discussion has be
